Hello all-

I am so excited about this card that I am posting...and I am going to tell you why.

I bought this *new* tool and I absolutely LOVE IT! It is called the Scor-Pal and it is absolutely amazing. It is a tool that allows you to make perfect score lines EVERYTIME when you are making cards, or boxes, or the Lattice Grid that is done on the card. The tool is SUPER easy to use and I was sent a tutorial on how to create the grid...and in 3 minutes, I was done.

I also tried something else. The butterfly on the card was stamped on a transparency.....yep....the kind that are used on over-head projectors....I stamped the image with Black StazOn ink. I let it dry. I then colored in the wings with a Sharpie Marker, cut the butterfly out and then slightly bent its wings to add demension. I attached it with a glue dot, and VOILA!!!!....this pretty card emerged.

Please let me know how you like it. I love to get feedback!

Thanks for stopping by!

Oh, it's so beautiful! What a great job you did with it. I love the rich colors. OK, I'm just going to have to try something different with my Scor-Pal than just scoring cards!

I really like this card. I haven't tried this technique yet with my scorpal or the transparency thing. I love it.
